Model UN in School:

UNA-MN is more than just advocacy—we support Minnesota educators across the state in the pursuit of great educational programming.

The Model UN app makes it easy to bring simulations to the classroom. Students are given options for how to take action on real-life global issues—both abroad and in their own community.

The app provides learning modules and step-by-step tools meant to engage students with the vital work of the United Nations.

The Model UN app’s lesson plans are given in a 60-minute format and are designed to build a knowledge of the principles of diplomacy, the basics of problem-solving, leadership actions, and public speaking.

The Model UN app is available for both Apple and Android phones.

Request Information:

The Model UN demonstrates for students on a micro level the interconnectedness of all persons and countries. While mastering skills such as speech writing, negotiation, and conflict resolution, students learn how to think critically about global issues and consider them from the perspective of another nation.
